     The Clinton Public Library is hoping to have a feasibility study done on the century old building.  It has price tag of $50 thousand dollars and the city looks to pay a big portion of it. 
     The study will look at structural condition, ADA compliance, and current systems like heating and electrical. A $30,000 grant will pay for part of it. City leaders this week voted to have staff come up with $20,750 to cover the rest.
     The hope is the will help come up with a game plan to improve the deteriorating facility.
     "We have to take care of this, we have to deal with this. And in order to do it we have to do it in a systematic order," said library Director Amy Birtell.
      "It does seem like we do more studies than we need, but unfortunately that's how you start a project to see if you actually need to do it," said Mayor Mark Vulich.
     Finance Director Jessica Kinser says it's not going to be easy, as that kind of money isn't exactly laying around. If the city's portion isn't currently in the city's funds or library account, borrowing it in an upcoming bond issue is another possibility.
     For years there have been discussion on finding a new home for the library. In 2010, residents voted against bonding $9 million to make that happen.
